Moderate Exercise May Help Manage Stress, Anxiety.

HealthDay (9/19, Dallas) reports that a study published online in the journal Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise “found that moderate exercise can help people manage future stress and anxiety, and the emotional and mental health benefits of exercise may last long after a workout ends.” For the study, investigators “compared the effects of 30-minute periods of quiet rest and moderate-intensity cycling on the anxiety levels of healthy college students.” Researchers found that “after viewing 90 stimulating photos from the International Affective Picture System, a database of images used in emotion research, for 20 minutes…only the students who exercised maintained a lower level of anxiety.”
